Cool BMW M3 DTM Revealed in M Performance Racing Form

BIMMERPOST NEWS
BMW M3 DTM Revealed with M Performance Outfit

COMMENTS

Here is the first look at the BMW M3 DTM decked out in full M Performance gear. It was revealed this evening, two days prior to the car's debut at the season ending DTM event at Hockenheim.

Speaking at the event, BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt, revealed that "The car’s aerodynamics were developed in close collaboration with the engineers from series production. The BMW Group boasts impressive resources in this field and the wind tunnels are ultra-modern. This – and the Title Partner BMW M Performance Accessories – shows that the entire company is behind the 2012 DTM project and is working hard towards it... Old-school DTM fans will recognize from the typical BMW M stripes that the appearance is based on the original BMW M3 cars from the 'old DTM'. We are very proud of this design. It is both traditional and modern in equal measures. It shows our roots, but in a contemporary style."

BMW won't be officially participating in a full DTM season until next year when it will enter three DTM teams - BMW Team RBM, BMW Team RMG, and BMW Team Schnitzer.

Pretty cool that BMW decided to show off the DTM racer at one of their dealerships (Autohaus Krauth in Heidelberg) near Hockenheim. That is the same guy who owns this(other) great BMW Zentrum in Sinsheim...

Just your average German BMW dealership!

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

What is DTM and why should I like it? Started watching ALMS this year due to my burgeoning appreciation for BMWs and auto racing in general but I've never heard of DTM. How is it different? How can it be watched from the US?
